Treating Your Psoriasis Skin in the Sticky, Sweaty Summer

Warm and humid weather can often improve your psoriasis symptoms. But, humidity can also set off hidden triggers. So, how do you face the heat when living with psoriasis?

Stay Dry

Hot, humid days often mean a lot of sticky sweat, which can trigger unwanted symptoms. Try to pat dry your skin when it gets too clammy and always have a spare change of clothes on hand in case things get sweaty.

Protect Your Skin

Remember to wear sunscreen and resist the urge to overexpose your skin. If you’re nervous about revealing any signs of psoriasis, like spots or patches, wear a light shirt or cover-up. You can truthfully tell anyone who asks that you are simply protecting your skin!

Use MetaDerm

The MetaDerm Skin Health System is lightweight and easy to throw in a beach bag or picnic basket. Bring some MetaDerm lotion with you for touch-ups on the go. It’s all natural, so you can use as much as you want to help promote flare-free skin all season.

Be Aware

While warmer weather might be great for your skin, it’s important to be aware of hidden triggers. In hotter months, people tend to crank up their air conditioning, which may dry out your skin. Also, the chlorine in pools can have a similar effect.

From heat waves to humid days, summer can bring unwanted triggers. Why worry about it when you can dive right in? By following these steps and caring for your skin with MetaDerm, you’ll be able to face the season.
